Although I find most religion a saftey blanket that provides little more than
superficial and short-lived protection from whatever they're trying to
protect from, the degree to which some libs want to go(i.e. making illegal even
saying the word God or even thinking about God) is hilarious. God
better watch out. Those libs are going to sue him any day now.
Wait . . . what do we need to put on the platform to win the election? Wait . .
. there are how many Jews and Christians in the country? Oh yeah, we meant to
have those things in there all along. Sorry Athiests and muslim brotherhood,
you know we have your back when it matters as always.xxooDNC
Now, If only the GOP would change their extremist party platform to
allow the right to a safe and legal abortion due; RapeIncestLife and Health of the Womanorviability of the fetus...then Republicans could at least be in harmony with the teaching of the LDS
Church... BTW - Shouldn't Israel be one's declaring
if Jerusalem is or is not their Capital -- and not some foregin political party
[GOp or Dem]?Silly if you ask me.
too little too late... sorry dems.
Talk about phonies, liers, BS artists and flop-floppers. They'll do
anything to get a vote. I'll bet they're on the phone right now trying
to get the pope to be their mystery speaker.
@Chris B"i.e. making illegal even saying the word God or even thinking
about God"There are literally 0 members of the Democratic
Congressional delegation that want that.
It seems that neither candidate shares the same views as their platforms. We
should do away with the party system before it destroys us.It is getting worse
than the Civil War days. We are letting the extremists drag us down to hell.
That's too bad, because both religion and the state of Israel seem bent on
getting us into a lot of trouble.
RE: HutteriteIsrael doesn't want any trouble,they
just their own state and be safe and free from the constant bombing from
islamic extremists.They have only done what is necessary to protect
themselves and thier historically God-given lands that had been taken from them
Totally agree. The Democrats last minute change is pandering for votes.Kind of reminds me of the opposition presidential candidates ability to
change course on a dime in order to garner votes.Gotta love politics
and politicians. NOT
They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to put God into their platform.
And they wonder why they have a hard time attracting people of faith to their
party. It's pathetic.
@patriot to little to late? really? like you where going to vote for them
before the platform came out and now your not? the only people that are going to
care about this come november are people that would never had voted for Obama in
the first place.
Both the Democratic and Republican platforms had elements that the nominees
disagreed with. The difference? Obama is actually a leader within his party,
so he asked them to change it, and they did. Romney is a puppet who is
terrified of alienating his base, so he can't do anything about it.
He's too afraid of what Rush Limbaugh will say to stand up for what he
‘Democrats change platform to add God, Jerusalem’Of
course they did. Most of us jump when someone holds our feet to the fire.
How dare they! The republicans thought they had a corner on God....again.
The ultimate Flip-Flop...I got a chuckle out of this one.
Seems like to the Democrats that God, as we understand Him, was a given. They
didn't mention that there would be night and morning, either. I suppose
that was something to bring up. And how about what should be the capital of
Switzerland? Would you like to take that one, Governor Romney? Let's see,
and the world is round, did anyone mention it? But believing that one got one
scientist into really deep trouble several centuries ago. I could go on and on.
My point is, the things one party has taken as not needing to be said because
they are woven into the fabric of general belief seem to really upset the other
one. Or maybe it just wants it said in the same exact way, with the exact same
words. Is that it?
Re: kargirl Sacramento, CA"Seems like to the Democrats that God, as we
understand Him, was a given."Probably why they booed when God
was invited back into their platform. No reason was given as to why He was
removed in the first place.
@patriot"You really have to be dumb to be a liberal these day"I've known for a decade (it'd be longer but I was too young to
notice more than a decade ago) that the Democratic party is spineless... but
I'd rather support wusses than the crazies that have taken over the
Maybe next the Dems can include something in their platform that says, "The
Office of the President is subservient to no other nation and will not bow to
them." Oh - wait. Then BO would have to step down - or at least start
acting like he respected his position.
the truth wrote:"Israel doesn't want any trouble,...They
have only done what is necessary to protect themselves and thier historically
God-given lands that had been taken from them millenia ago."Wow!
How history can be so conveniently rewritten is astounding!Because
of space limitations, let me just point out that "Israel" abandoned
those "God-given lands" for over 400 years, then tried to commit
genocide against the peaceful people's who moved there in their absence.Killing innocent people because your "god" tells you to is the
hallmark of religious fanaticism, and laying arbitrary claim to property that
has been possessed and settled by other peoples for half a millenium, and
justifying it by saying "God gave us this land" is beyond the pale!But I suppose you would endorse and support Native Americans if they
engaged in terrorist acts to re-take what is today the "occupied
territories" of the United States of America?
